The Who and Janis Joplin together again - sort of. Tommy and Hedwig and the Angry Inch star Michael Cerveris and Love, Janis' Cathy Richardson share the limelight in the Sh-k-Boom Room June 21 at 11 PM. Both singers will perform original rock music, Richardson with Joel Hoekstra and Cerveris with his band. Cerveris was a Tony Award nominee for the title role in The Who's Tommy, going on to play Thomas Andrews in Titanic and to replace John Cameron Mitchell as Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch Off-Broadway ( he later played the part in Los Angeles and London). New to theatre (Love, Janis is her acting debut), Richardson is well-known in Chicago for fronting the popular Cathy Richardson Band.
